Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very clean and comfortable. There were eight of us in our party and we had plenty of room. If we had any questions or concerns someone was just a phone call away and they took care of any needs that we had. We stayed during the 4th of the July and the fireworks display in Pagosa Springs was fantastic! We took several day trips to the most beautiful scenic spots and the drive was less than 30 minutes to get there. There is so much to do and see. I am very particular when it comes to cleanliness and comfort and "Casa Del Sol" met all of my expectations. This vacation rental is very affordable for the size and comfort, I would recommend this vacation rental and guarantee you won't regret it.

The owner was exceptionally gracious.

  • 4 of 5

We come to Pagosa every year with our grandchildren who look forward to it all year long. This house felt like home except for the fact that the first morning, we awoke to a construction crew working on the outside of the house. What we found out was that due to an unseasonable wet spring, the construction that started in March was long overdue to be complete. The owner (who is out of state) more than bent over backward to make things right. She stopped work immediately and called numerous times to make sure we were ok. The house is far enough from town to feel remote, but close enough that we can be in town within 15 minutes. We are a group of 10 and aged from 4 to 67. The hiking was glorious, there was plenty of room for the kids to ride their bikes and motor bike and I will hate to stop my morning ritual of having coffee on the front steps at 6am, where a wild rafter of turkeys came to visit every morning right up to the house. Tonight we saw 6 gorgeous bucks watching us in all their glory as we stopped to take pictures. We definitely recommend this house to you!

A Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Casa del Sol and our expectations were thoroughly exceeded. The property is very well appointed. My wife and I didn't lack a thing. The owner is very friendly and easy to work with. We enjoyed the turkeys, the spectacular views, and serenity. This place truly recharges the batteries. Casa del Sol is good for your soul.

Great Stay in Pagosa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa del Sol was superb. The house is grand and all appointments in the home were excellent. The home is close to town and yet out far enough to give you that Rocky Mountain retreat feeling. The views from the home are grand and made for great times on the deck. Wildlife was everywhere including mule deer and wild turkeys in the yard. The hummingbirds and local birdlife was spectactular including golden eagles.

If you want that southwest feeling and a Colorado vacation among the ponderosa pines this is the place for you. We can't wait for a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review...experiencing the wildlife around Casa is something I always look forward to...there was a time when 18 turkeys would cross my property every day- babies included! It was wonderful to have you as my guests - and learn also that our southwestern taste in design is so similar! Hope to have you visit again (and enjoy the new deck across the front!) for another mountain getaway...

Amazing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was very clean and as described. We slept very comfortably and this home has all of the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Beautiful location, quiet, and close to Wolf Creek. The town of Pagosa is a wonderful place to visit. Really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, great views and saw elk and wild turkeys down on the hill. Comfortable beds, ping pong was fun on the lower level - can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Your review is appreciated! It seems many people can get addicted to that ping pong game! (myself included), and others have enjoyed the magnetic dart game too; I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and my home, and hope you will visit us again!

What a house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa del sol was magnificent. It was everything that we imagined and more. Pagosa Springs was a great choice for our vacation. It was perfect for the 6 of us. We had plenty of room. The view from inside and outside the house was breath taking. The quiet sounds of the San Juan river flowing behind the house was inspirational. The views were very enjoyable. We also enjoyed the games and ping pong table. During our stay we awoke to find to sweet bears in the front yard eating. We also have seen squirrels, chipmunks, birds, prairie dogs, deer, elk, lizards, and much more to mention. The house was well stocked with everything that we could think of. Larry was very helpful. He recommended the very yummy restaurants. A week was not long enough for us to see everything. We now how a new favorite place to vacation.

It was quite a struggle for us to leave Casa de sol and its wonderful views and weather. Beautiful house and town. What more can you ask for.
